VOICEPRESS reports citing foreign media that speaking during a televised meeting, Rouhani issued scathing attacks on Trump, accusing him of hampering Iran’s ability to respond to the Covid-19 outbreak by blocking its efforts to acquire a vaccine through the World Health Organization.
“A person who committed so many atrocities, who was a killer, a terrorist, who doesn’t even spare our vaccine efforts. This is how much this person is bereft of all ethical and human principles” – he stated.
Iran has been the worst-hit country in the Middle East, with over 1.1 million confirmed coronavirus cases and 52,670 fatalities from the virus since the start of the pandemic. Case numbers have been rising sharply in recent months, as Tehran’s medical facilities have struggled to meet the demand and get the necessary medical equipment to support patients and protect healthcare workers.
